The ‘In the mix’ feature in our May issue hosts Hi Spirits, specifically focusing on Southern Comfort Old fashioned Noir. This issue focuses on southern Comfort for our cocktail of the month feature. Here at On-Trade Progress, we were given the chance to visit the Southern Comfort Southern Showdown which showcased some of the United Kingdoms bartender talent with the winner moving onto the main competition in New Orleans. Whilst the event was held for the competition it was also showcasing the release of Southern Comforts new Whisky, Southern Comfort Old Fashioned Noir.
The spirit of New Orleans takes centre stage for our ‘in the mix’ feature this month. it features the new to the market ‘Southern Comfort Black’ which has a bold profile (40% AVB) and manages to retain the iconic Southern Comfort taste. A fantastic cocktail to add to your drink offering over the summer.
